Just Learning About My Empathy Gift


My name is Jen, I'm 18 years old. About a year ago I started having breakdowns and major anxiety issues that started happening for no apparent reason. The doctor evaluated me and said I had depression. I was lost and angry because there was no reason as to why I was feeling this way. But I have always felt that I had something special to offer other people and I feel I can be very helpful in situations others find extremely difficult. Even if I haven't been in a certain situation others have, I can understand them very well and my opinion has always helped them in a good way and they feel better.

I was just recently informed by a psychic that I'm empathetic and I also have an old soul. It just clicked and I knew that's exactly what my depression was from being empathetic. Doing research, I found out that empaths can suffer from depression by not being able to manage all of the energies they are receiving. I have always been sensitive seeing other people struggle in their daily lives sometimes I can't help but cry for them. I feel more sensitive for my dad than anyone. Around him I'm sad and feel helpless. He and my mom got a divorce when I was 12 years old, he cheated on her. Every time I get home from being with my dad I can be very angry and take it out on my mom and brother and cry for no reason. I feel as if there is something I have to do but don't have the power or materials to accomplish the task.

If I meet a person or someone catches my eye on the corner I can get a pretty good idea of what they are like and what there background is. I love meeting new people but there are always the times I meet someone I just don't like or have a bad feeling about them. When the phone rings without expecting a call or looking at caller I know who is calling. I try to go with my first instinct with everything because it's always right. I would just like more knowledge about old souls and empaths. Any good websites you know about? Anything helps! Thanks!

I'm Empath too! I just figured it out though. It's weird for me discovering that these were probably the reasons I would cry very hard when I saw somebody else crying or being sad. I can also feel the stories of everyone. I am naturally more intrigued by people with interesting stories then boring, normal ones. I can tell when somebody is mad or dangerous, or when somebody is in need of help. When I can't help I feel terrible.

In short I totally get how you feel. This might something immature for very uh... Advanced physics. But listen to really loud music when I want to block other peoples feelings. I helps a little bit!

I am also an empath, and a few people know a bit about me in here. Well, to tell you the truth, out of all the sites I have gone to over time, this is the one that has helped me the most. Going to the website, finding people who can help me, and working on my empathy and other abilities is one of the things I very much enjoy. I recommend that you check out the Chat-room, however, be careful. Lately, its full with more pains than help.:)

Many empaths have a old soul. Souls usually are chosen for there deeds in past lives to live again (not saying we arent ourself) old souls have thing they have to learn and do in their new lives they are give more chances than other cause they have accomplished what they need to in a past live.

I'm also a newly discovered empath. It's exciting to finally know why we have random and unnecessary mood swings.
Someone left a comment on my story with a very helpful website:

Best of luck! ❤

If there are helpful websites, I haven't found one. This place is helpful because we are all learning and trying to figure out things. I'm sensitive to people too. I can block that a lot unless I'm tired and get in a crowd. If someone dangerous is around, I let that sense invade to protect myself. It's helped more than once. It's scared a few which is rewarding at the time and funny to think about later. If someone is in need, in some way I can help without total disruption, I let that in also. My first suggestion is that you learn to control what you let in. I do this some way, not sure how, but have always done it. I call it a jelly wall because once saw it and it looked like that to me. Some call it a white light. Next, figure out your best, most fun life and let go of feeling sad. It doesn't help. If you want to live in the city and run a deli or be an engineer, figure it out and do it and don't get distracted by psychic stuff because it can help you achieve what you want, here. You are here now which means you have to eat and take buses or drive a car. Supporting yourself is important, but doesn't have to be elaborate. And, listen to yourself, your thoughts and the voice. No one told me that, and I wish that I had known it sooner. Perhaps I still would have argued at times, but listening is good. Perhaps not for everyone, but when I have listened, it's always helped me. There are probably bad voices out there, I have no idea, but mine has never hurt me and saved my rear many times. Not listening, which I argue a lot and question, is not always wise. I was once told, flat out, that I'm the questioner. I argued then. Then I questioned what it meant because I see myself as mellow. Then I realized, after my husband laughed at this description of myself, that I really do question and I'm a little more aggressive than I realized if a bad person is around, like a prowler. I once walked up behind one and followed him awhile, got bored, yelled that he'd seen his last day, and watched him run. I had a small lamp.
